"Highly original... This sweetly fractured fairy tale is a tasty slice of city life... zips along with eclectic humor... ingeniously daffy... (with) the occasional gut punch to remind us of what a frightening world we live in."
- New York Times

"Intelligent, engaging, and absolutely fresh!"
- Backstage

"A wacky, multi-layered allegory... a topical romp... a clever red herring... uniquely entertaining."
- offoffonline.com

"Funny... zany even..."

Professional gambler Cliff has got it bad. His daughter doesn’t need him, his wife might leave him, and his newspaper vender Iftikhar, whose mother country is at war, just might kill him. Witness Cliff’s darkly comic, spiraling descent into a paranoid mythology of power-point presentations, rolls of quarters and hostage videos. Can our migraine-plagued redheaded founding father Thomas Jefferson save the day? Enter with caution into a desperation-filled dreamscape, where the sanest inhabitant may be Thomas Jefferson. (With songs.)
